This the morning, my dad bought me an EU-UK converter so I could get back to working from home. I tried working from bed, from my dad’s desk and sat on my skateboard, scooting around my room. It’s fair to say it’s going to take some time to find a new comfy working spot. I miss the ergonomic IKEA furniture in my office.
I got dressed into real clothes, which made me more productive. I did a bit of unpacking, wrapped some birthday presents for my sister and skateboarded across my room while facetiming my friends who are coming home this week. It’s strange to think that for the first time in three months we will not only be in the same country, but in the same town, and we can’t hang out. We’re all planning on staying at home but wondering is any amount of social contact okay? I think for now, no.
This afternoon, my sister returned home after spending her birthday in Exeter with her boyfriend. She was not happy with the omnipresent news of coronavirus which seemed to have dampened the moods of everyone around her. I mean, I’m pretty sure I spent a whole month celebrating my 19thbirthday and she’s had barely a minute before a BREAKING NEWS story informs her that she won’t be able to see her friends for a coffee, let alone a party- I feel for her. I wonder how the rest of the world are celebrating birthdays, engagements, anniversaries etc right now?
I had a stretchy session before dinner- following along with @ukunicheer’s livestream on Instagram. It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been to the gym and I forgot how good exercise is for reducing stress. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll go on a run (away from people).
Okay that’s it, day 2 done. To be honest, this year I have felt quite low in social energy, so I am actually enjoying spending some time alone. We’ll see how this progresses because I have a feeling we are far from the end.
Imaginary hugs and kisses, so we don’t spread the virus,
